    To Darren,

    Again I would PM you with these question but PM for me has been disabled along with ever other function in my control panel. I am still waiting for you to tell me exactly what I did to get on restriction. And I would like to know why for every 20 posts I make only 10 of them ever appear, they have not been rule breaking posts or anything else, they were perfectly fine so why do they never appear? Also why does my sig never appears in my posts anymore?

    Thanks,
    Col. Newman

    I've posted like seven or eight times (I only joined yesterday, so, yeah), but when I post, it says my posts are zero. I'm just plain confused.

    Because posts made in Off Topic don't count. There's supposed to be a new & improved FAQ coming out which will explain things like that. *cough* Right, Darren??

    About why you've been put on moderation: it's about respecting other posters, which is a rule here, and your definition of rule-breaking and mine are somewhat out of synch. I won't go into details cos I don't know the exact incident which triggered it and it wouldn't be fair to you to publicise it even if it was our policy, which it isn't.

    But you don't need to see it as a bad thing - there've been a couple of threads recently where you yourself have deleted your posts or asked for them to be deleted after getting huge heaps of red rep or angry replies. This way, we can sift out that sort of thing for you before it becomes an issue. (I tend to approve most of your posts, but whenever I see [size=7]DUH[/size] in one, I have trouble reconciling it with the Respect thing... )

    I deleted your sig myself. Remember when I asked you to shrink it cos it was three times the size we allow and was causing problems for dial-up users? You replied that you weren't in the mood, and while I don't have the time or skills to shrink massive sigs I'm pretty nifty at deleting them, and I was in the mood.

    I hope that's everything clarified.

    Best to PM a moderator about those, or use the report function, as they would check them much faster than this thread.

    I agree, as I see no reason for this thread to be here if not to request the mods do something.

    I've closed the threads. It's fine to ask in here. A PM only gets read by one mod and we don't all log in every day; and we get so many Reported posts in our e-mails that it's nicer for the non-urgent requests to be here... and we'll probably get to them in roughly the same sort of timescale.

    Thank you for closing the threads. Much appreciate it, if GateWorld would authorise Colonel Sharp and Myself moderatorship over the one Stargate Roleplaying board then we wouldn't have to ask we could just do it ourselves. But meh I have no problems bothering you mods with the requests.

    How about a thread being created in the RP section where RP-related modding can be requested

    I hope that's everything clarified.
    First: Yes "moderation" is a bad thing it sometimes takes 1 or 2 or even 3 days for my posts to appear sometimes

    Second: second you keep calling it moderation it's NOT because I can't do anything. You know all those links that are on the left side of your control panel, well I can't do any of that, I tried clicking on every single one and every time I got a page saying I don't have permission to view this page

    Third: after I had calmed down after PMing you saying I wasn't in the mood to shrink my sig, I CUT the thing in HALF

    Fourth: so it is ok for people who don't like what i have to say, to PM me and call me names and leave comment calling me names but it's not ok for me to retaliate?

    Fifth: Wouldn't it just be easier to ban me from the OT area so I am not temped to run my mouth? I have a vB board of my own so I know an admin can do it would only take ten minutes, just put me in a separate group that is not allowed in the OT section, presto done

    Well in order to have both admin powers and Super Mod powers a admin has to select both in your profile (i think it is) which Greg could do, he could make himself a mod if he wanted

    Admins and mods aren't the same thing. Greg has admin powers so he can do all the tech support stuff, but he isn't a mod. Which is one reason he has PM's turned off.

    In Computer hierarchies Admins can do everything

    Darren is able to mod

    I think Greg means that he doesnt do modding so as not to step on the toes of the other mods as he isnt officially a mod
